We believe that the well-being of each citizen is connected to that of every other and that the vitality of any community is determined by the quality of those relationships.
Our purpose is to join with others to strengthen our community, in measurable and sustainable ways, for the benefit of all citizens, especially those who are disadvantaged.
We are committed to be an effective resource developer and a responsible steward of those resources, an active grantmaker and convener addressing crucial community needs, and an advocate and constructive catalyst for changing systems to better serve people.
The Minneapolis Foundation subscribes to the Principles for Minnesota Grantmakers. We are a member of the national Council on Foundations, the Minnesota Council on Foundations, and we are Confirmed in Compliance with National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations.
